About Me

Hi! I am freelance lighting designer and electrician newly relocated to Maryland from Knoxville, Tennessee, where I graduated from the University of Tennessee—Knoxville double majoring in English with a Literature Concentration, and Theatre with double Design & Technology and Honors concentrations. In addition to studying lighting design for theatre, I enjoyed taking courses in dance lighting, projection design, photography for the stage, and sound design, which both fulfilled personal interests and further rounded out my artistry. I also read linguistics, specifically sociolinguistics and second language acquisition, and am interested in language ideologies people hold around dialects and bilingualism. 

About My Work

I have always been drawn to film scores and soundtracks, which has developed the way I conceptualize lighting design. In the same way a low underscore can subtly shape the emotional timbre of a scene or crashing music draws attention to heightened moments, I feel the ebb and flow of light in a space----chilling with a frosty argument, surging with the beats of a song, trickling down to an intimate moment alone onstage. I like my lighting to be alive and in motion, even if it's simply stretching out shadows in response to the mere passage of time.
